Looking and Seeing

Successful photographers train their eye (with practice) and develop the ability to 'see in pictures'. They may stop and examine a formation of coral and view the scene with a completely different perspective than their buddy, who may be photographically blind to the creative opportunities that are all around. This type of photographer may have the technical 'know-how' and all the enthusiasm, but lacks that underwater inner eye so essential in recognising a subject's potential in the first place.

I have dived with photographers who swim over glorious opportunities because the corals do not appear to their eye to justify so much as a second glance! I work with them to develop this aspect of their learning more than any other part. If only they could view the scene through the wide angle viewfinder in their 'inner eye' and take a moment to visualise how things may be recorded, they would discover a wealth of possibilities right under their nose.
